Ender-7 vs. CR-10 S5: Leveling the Printing Field
You might think that there’s an inherent price difference between 3D printers geared towards industrial applications and those that are compatible with DIY desktop setups, but this is not the case; options exist at the same price point for a multitude of uses depending on what you’re looking for in your printer. Let’s take a look at two examples—Creality3D’s Ender-7 and CR-10 S5—and see how they differ.
Ender-7: Precision Industrial 3D Printer
This table 3D printer’s defining feature is its remarkable maximum speed of 250 mm/s, a figure that outdoes most other printers fivefold and is complemented by a high-volume nozzle to keep up with rapid extrusion. It also sports a large melting chamber and heating block to achieve full melting of the filament, as well as dual cooling fans for rapid solidification of printed pieces. Compatible with several different slicing software options and supporting 9 interface languages, the Ender-7 can be used by manufacturers in many countries to quickly produce industrial prototypes. Alternatively, it can be adapted by individual artists to serve their needs when making precise architectural models or art pieces. Lastly, this printer’s durability affords it a projected lifetime of about 9 years (approx. 78500 hours), a considerable timeframe for an already efficient product to create countless models.
